From the US Department of Energy, October 29, 2021: The US DOE announced $6 million for collaborative research in high energy physics that involves substantial collaboration with Japanese investigators. Research supported under this initiative is expected to include experimental work at DOE’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) in Japan, as well as the study of rare particles produced at the SuperKEKB collider at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) in Japan.

Energy I-Corps supports teams of researchers and industry mentors for an intensive two-month training program where the researchers define technology value propositions, conduct customer discovery interviews, and develop viable market pathways for their technologies. Researchers return to the lab with a framework for industry engagement to guide future research and inform a culture of market awareness within the labs. Applicants apply to Energy I-Corps as a team, composed of a Principal Investigator (PI) with a commercially relevant technology, an Entrepreneurial…
